Students have the entire semester, for which they are registered for the internship, to complete the internship hours.  SPMT 684 interns must complete a minimum of 40 internship work hours per academic credit hour, which equals a minimum of 120 total documented work hours (that being said, if the organization that you are interning for requires more hours, then you must meet their minimum hours, even if it is more than we require on the academic side.  For example, if the organization you intern with requires to you work 20 hours a week for a minimum of 10 weeks, then you would get 200 hours.  The organization may require more than the 120 hours, but you will not get credit if you complete less than the 120 hours that we require).  Further, you may not retroactively use previous work towards your internship. All internship hours and work must be concurrent with the semester in which you are registered for academic credit for the internship.
